“Heart Windows At Dawn”, a poem from L.Willows (Holy Breath, Spirit of God, Arise)

Heart Windows at Dawn

Dawn breaks through my window here in God’s morn,
tapestries quake shadows in the cool still yet torn.
My heart wakes in wonder to turquoise-lit skies.
Hope leaps, and I breathe released into The Joy’s sigh.

Gentle winds lift curtains into dances that climb
into stories that tell, like keepers of time.
Hushed in the mists that rise, that lift…
The Heavens incline our hearts in God’s drift.

Here the Dawn breaks. In living, life quakes.
Poured into Love’s midst, I rise at daybreak.
The warmth of the sun rising, in prayer, life gazing.
Light to day whispers – all of life praising.

Ephesians 15:14 —For anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.

Isaiah 60.1 —Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.”

“There You Are”, a poem from L.Willows (Grace, Hope in God, A New Day)

There You Are

Somewhere,
in the day that tomorrow brings,
I see you smiling.
Your eyes are sparkling with the dances
that light in a new horizon.


You are gathering,
swelling, like waters that fill into rivers
that pour Love into view,
You are new.

Somewhere,
in the day that tomorrow brings
I see you healed,
your sweetened heart revealed.
Your life joins with beloveds,
in an eternal embrace.
You are in the arms of grace.

There you are
in the dawn
that rises up to meet you,
wrapped by the most tender mercies
and a blanket of prayers.

There.
Entwined, encouraged and seen.
You are with each good thing.
You are inside of hope’s dream.
There. I see you.

There you are.
my Dearest
not a far smile away
,
waking in the Promise of a bold new Day.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 —He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

Isaiah 43:18-19 —“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

“The Love That Grace Brines”, a worship Poem from L.Willows (Grace, Hope, God’s Glory)

The Love That Grace Brines

I see you in the Dawning,
In the love that Grace brines
Covered in starlight
with dew drops from God’s Vine.

There in hope’s garment
Bathed in His Light
The new day stirs wonder
with Holy invite.

I see you in forever
Embraced by Joy’s own
Heart leaping towards
Love’s Holy Throne.

I hear you in the singing
In the nectar that calls
In heart petals that open
Towards heaven’s enthrall.

In the now-time to ever,
from daybreak to then.
I embrace you in the call of God’s faithful, Amen.
